The 20-year-old has signed an initial one-year deal with an option in the club's favour should they wish to extend his deal.

A convert from rugby union, where he represented England U18s and Leeds Carnegie, Rawsthorne also had a spell in the academy at Leeds Rhinos before joining Halifax.

I'm really pleased to add Nick to the squad next year, I think he has all the attributes to become a first-team regular for our club.

He has been very impressive in the reserves competition this year for Halifax, particularly when he played against us, whilst is accuracy with his goal kicking is also a real plus.

He is at a great age to progress his career to the next level and along with Jack Logan coming through the long term future of our outside backs looks very promising.

– Lee Radford, Hull FC head coach

The 21 year old will face Frenchman Adrian Mannarino in the first round, but if he wins that, he's likely to come up against number one seed Novak Djokovic in the second. The Serb, who's the reigning champion, plays another Briton, James Ward, in the first round.

Although the Tigers had initially exercised their option to offer him a one-year deal at the end of the 2015/16 season, negotiations began immediately to secure Jakupović on a longer-term contract with a two-year deal now agreed.

Jakupović is the club’s longest-serving player having arrived from Greek side Aris Salonika in July 2012. The 31-year-old has played 28 times for the Tigers and played a key role in the Play-Off success at the end of last season.
